Annual Research Symposium

About the OSF HealthCare Annual Research Symposium

Since 2004, OSF HealthCare has hosted the Annual Research Symposium (ARS), a free event where professionals gather to learn and recognize research, evidence-based practice and process/quality improvement activities and accomplishments from across the OSF HealthCare Ministry and research community.

The daylong event is devoted to:

  • showcasing and celebrating past and ongoing efforts
  • raising awareness of research ethics and human research participant protections
  • providing learning opportunities to both experienced and novice researchers
  • promoting responsible conduct of research
  • implementation of research practices in health care settings

All OSF HealthCare Mission Partners and other research community members interested and/or involved in research are invited to attend.

Research participants are not an intended audience of the ARS, and attendance is limited to research and other medical professionals only.
